craft stores, stamps, scrapbook, paper ...

Hi I´m going to London in June and would like to visit some craftstores. I´ve not had much luck finding information about craftstores. Most of the one I find are just selling over the net.

I´m interested in stamps, scrapbooking, papers of all kind, silk ribbons, miniatures and so on...

Thanks to all

Silk ribbons can be bought at Liberty (department store) on Regent Street.

For a long list of Art & Craft shops, have a look at www.yell.com.

Type in 'crafts' in the 'search for' box, and 'London' for location. There is a short description of what each shop sells, so you'll be able to get an idea of what they carry.

HobbyCraft is a chain of quite large stores selling all kinds of craft materials - the nearest one to central London is at Greenford - adjacent to Greenford station on the Central Underground line from the centre of London.

Please see this web page for store location map, address, phone number etc. :-

Hi

There's a chain of stores in England called Lakeland. Although they sell mainly kitchenware, many of their shops do a great range of craft things - all the stuff you are after.

They also do great packs to enable you to make your own birthday cards etc, as well as stickers, ribbons and loads of bits and pieces.

Unfortunately their website seems to be down at the moment so I can't check their London stores, but the website is -www.lakelandlimited.co.uk

The kitchenware is well worth looking at as well!

Have a look at www.tinyurl.com/qgo15 (last two digits are one five, not letter L five).
